2016-17 Preview: The future overagers Currently there are six overage candidates for next season’s three Everett Silvertips overage slots. However, that could certainly change. Last year at this time there were seven potential overagers and by the time camp rolled around the list had been trimmed to four. The organization certainly has ample time to make some moves.

2015-16 Review: Coaching Everett Silvertips head coach Kevin Constantine was named the WHL’s Coach of Year in 2004 after leading the Tips to their only Western Conference title in their first season. That remains the only time a Tips mentor has earned the honor in the 13-year history of the franchise.

2015-16 Review: The overagers It seems that usually a 20-year-old serves as a WHL team’s captain. In that sense the 2015-16 Everett Silvertips were unique in that their captain was 19-year-old Dawson Leedahl.

2015-16 Review: Trying to put the Everett Silvertips season in perspective The players are gone, having returned to homes as close as rural Snohomish County and as far away as Innsbruck, Austria. The general manager is in Calgary prepping for the bantam draft. The head coach longs for the return of this week’s earlier weather so he can head out to the San Juan Islands. And the broadcaster is on the golf course.

The Game
This one snowballed. The Tips got off to their best first-period start of the series, but it all fell apart in the second period.

It began when Carter Hart misplayed Scott Eansor’s shot from the slot. Everyone seemed to think Hart caught the puck - including Hart himself. But he never secured it and it trickled into the goal behind him.

Then came a couple of shots in which Hart was screened and before you knew it, it was...

NHL Central Scouting ranked Everett goaltender Carter Hart No. 2 among North American goalies in its final 2016 rankings released Tuesday morning.

It’s a drop of one spot for Hart, who was the top-ranked net minder when the midterm list was released in January. Nevertheless Hart becomes the second Tips goalie to be ranked second joining Leland Irving who held the No. 2 spot in 2006. Irving went on to be drafted No. 26 overall by Calgary in that year’s NHL...

Is this year’s Everett Silvertips reminding you of the 2003-2004 squad?

It’s a comparison colleague Nick Patterson briefly alluded to before and I had to ask head coach Kevin Constantine about it after the Tips swept Portland Wednesday night.

VIDEO and Final thoughts as Everett  Silvertips go up 2-0 on Portland Winterhawks The Game
I’m not sure the last time the Everett Silvertips went up 2-0 in a postseason series (though I think broadcaster Mike Benton may have mentioned on his pregame show).

I do know it wasn’t last year as the Tips split their first two games against both Spokane and Seattle.

Carter Hart still absent as Everett Silvertips hold final practice before playoff opener The Everett Silvertips held their final practice before Friday’s playoff opener against Portland.

Carter Hart still did not practice. Though the organization isn’t saying, I have a tough time thinking he will play this weekend. I’m not even sure how effective he would be even if cleared to play.

Final thoughts... And a vignette with Austin Lotz You might think perspective would be tough to come by for former Everett Silvertips goaltender Austin Lotz, considering how his tenure as a Tip ended.
